Alcatel OneTouch Fierce 2 hands-on

5
Big phone with a small experience

Alcatel's newest budget phone, the OneTouch Fierce 2, comes to T-Mobile for $126 dollars, or a mere $5.25 a month. It's got a 5-inch screen, a hefty size and feel (though the construction feels as cheap as it is), and even runs 4.4.2 Kit Kat. But can this phone compete with the new 5-inch Moto G, which is only 50 bucks more?

Let's take a look.

Whatcha doing tonight? Give our app a go!

67

Kick your feet up. Take a load off. Pour a glass of something, preferably cool and refreshing. Or maybe just a tad warm, seeing as how for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere it's the first day of fall.

And then while you're at it, take a minute and give the official Android Central app a try!

Inside the new Moto app, home to most of the cool Moto X features

Moto app on the Moto X 2014

All of your favorite features are back on the Moto X, this time housed in a single app

On one level, not too much has changed in the 2014, insofar as the software is concerned. You still have the hotword voice actions, you still have the peeking notifications, and Motorola Assist is still on board, with its bevy of cool features.

New with the 2014 Moto X is that they've all been moved under a single umbrella app, simply called "Moto."

Let's take a quick walk around the new space to get our bearings.

How much will a Galaxy Note 4 cost off-contract?

152

Galaxy Notes have never been cheap phones, and the Galaxy Note 4 is no exception. While buying the phone on-contract can soften the blow (or at least spread the misery out), for many, that's not an option. Maybe you have to buy unlocked to keep that precious unlimited data plan. Maybe you just don't like And besides, you don't have to sell your wireless soul for two years to get the Note 4, you can buy off-contract. You'll be spending a pretty penny, but it's a pretty phone, and a pretty useful one at that. So, here's what the newest phablet will run you on each of the major American carriers (T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint).

  • We'll start with Verizon, mostly because they'll be the cheapest for the Note 4 off-contract. Big Red will sell you an off-contract Note 4 for $699.
  • Next is Sprint, which is offering it at $720 dollars off-contract for its users.
  • T-Mobile is offering the Galaxy Note 4 at $750 to all users, since there is not carrier subsidy.
  • And AT&T will be happy to sell you a Galaxy Note 4 at a $825, without a contract but with all of AT&T's bloatware.

There you have it. Go forth and claim your Note 4, wherever it may be.
